    I was working protection at a large party (4,000 people) during the fireworks. I did manage to sneak a peek at a few of the other, local body guards during the show, and caught one of them totally engrossed in the display - not paying attention to the protectee at all. It was amusing, if slightly disconcerting.

    I was in Orange during the fireworks, waiting for that oh-so-Hollywood moment when the assassin uses the noise and distraction to launch his attack. Of course, this didn't happen, but I'm not going to be the guy on CNN staring up at the pretty lights when a senior US official gets killed!
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Kids made me take 'em tot he city's display. First time since I was A kid. Did I mention how I hate crowds? Walking down the main street somebody at a stop light threw a few big firecrackers (Bangs, not pops) out of their car window right as we walked by. Already on edge, I nearly threw some 147 grain JHPs at them. (never really drew, but jumped to reddish orange for a moment). Found a spot where we could put our chairs with our backs to a Sears store. At least the kids enjoyed it.

    July 3rd... Went to dinner with wife in neighboring town. On the way home pulled off side of road to watch that towns main display. We stayed in car and watched as many other people pulled over too and watched as well. Was constantly checking rear view mirror and outside side mirror to watch for cars or people on foot approaching from rear. Gun was in floor mounted anti-carjack holster.

    Stayed home on the 4th and watched rented movies.

    I was inside most of the time. I didn't have to go anywhere to watch, as my neighbors were going nuts launching stuff. Not exactly in condition white, per se, but I got to the point of not really paying attention to all the noise outside.

    I was on fire watch as I am every 4th of july, to make sure my pasture doesn't catch on fire from the neighbors fireworks.

    Wildfire danger is "extreme" in NW Montana right now, only officially sanctioned fireworks displays were allowed.

    That didn't stop my moronic neighbors from shooting off their fireworks (and an occassional gun) until around 0200.

    I stayed home, sort of in between white & yellow.

    I was white, cuz I sit around in my white Underroos and sockies while reading the forums. Also, was looking over my new guns I traded for, new DW 45 Patriot and SA 1911 w/ ambi and action job. Mr Sig P229 SAS keeps me company as well. The wife was seeing the back of her eyelids, but it was past 9:00....Don't tell her I told you all.
    I know, I know, you are smarter than me..just ask you..

    Wife and I went into town - thru rain but it perked up for when dark.

    Got our chairs set up on the main bridge over river which is a good spot for watching.

    Lotta folks around tho and before things started some younger ''types'' turned up and were standing behind us. End result was almost solid yellow but have to admit during the finale when all sortsa stuff was going off, I got close to a shade of white briefly.

    Once it had finished and we returned to car to escape .. walking in crowds ... enhanced yellow!!

    Somewhat, but then, we were on a private ridgeline about 5mi out, watching the city's display while setting up to play with about $20 worth of our own.

    Glowsticks worked well to mark the safe backstop for a few leftover tracer rounds, and given the record rainfall for the last several weeks, I doubt we could've started a fire with napalm.

    [QUOTE=64zebra;420132]However when we do get to go I force myself to stay yellow because there are always "shady" characters coming by.QUOTE]

    That right there should keep you alert. We stay home to keep our home from catching fire. . . .

    P.S. 64zebra, I love your avitar!!! Mine is broken too.

    Didn't watch fireworks I fed a screaming baby instead
